Dear sons: Be confident

Letter #7

Dear sons:

The other day I met someone who exuded such confidence. You could feel it in the handshake, the speech, the eye contact. There's a reason that I tell you to speak up and to give people a firm handshake. Confidence and success kind of go hand-in-hand. Not that you can't be successful and shy at the same time, but depending on the field you're going into, it can make life much easier to show confidence when dealing with people. Some professions depend on it. It can be scary meeting new people. You might feel unsure and a bit timid. It'll make it much easier to get a job if you go in feeling confident and jobs are hard to come by these days. So, next time you meet someone, practice what I've been telling you. Give a firm handshake, look them in the eye and introduce yourself in a confident tone.

Love,

Mom
